Painting - Spring Cleaning and New Art

Recommended Posts

Just spent a week with the painters, painting the entire inside of the house! Wow, what a job. Moving furniture, spring cleaning and I am knackered and too old for this stuff.

We had all of the holes in the walls where pictures previously hung filled and painted so we could start fresh. Now most of the walls are bare, so we have to decide what pictures we want to replace or change and yesterday I took this one in to have a 48 inch canvas wrap done. Cost $240. The image front will be just under 48 inches because 50mm per side is required to allow for the wrap.

I know how you feel. We have an easier solution though - we give the decorator a key and go on holiday for a week. On return there is a strong smell of paint but everything is finished.

The only snag is that decorators here prefer to do inside work in winter so we've had to holiday in January a few times.

Funny to talk about Spring cleaning - I switched the central heating on last weekend!

Spring, started here on the 1st September and already I have noticed a increase in temperature. Just heard the artwork is done, so I can pick that up tomorrow, or Friday.

I got the canvas wrap image above back from the printers today and they did a great job. It comes back robustly framed and varnished and ready to hang. It's already up on the wall of the TV room. I left them with the image below to be be printed 74in * 21in on the front face. Meaning that with this image the 50mm wrap will be a neutral colour, not part of the image as you can see below.

There are three walls this would go on nicely, but the dining room is the one I favour, but we will see when we get it back next week

Never thought of that, but if any forum members want the artwork to have their own printed, they are welcome. Just let me know what you want
